  • The 20-year-old woman run over Monday in the north Fred Meyer parking lot during an apparent drug deal gone wrong remains in critical condition at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, a hospital spokesperson said.
    Brittney Debler was attempting to buy opiate-based pain pills before she was run over by the drug dealers' vehicle after they ripped her off, Medford police said.
    The exchange allegedly took place through the open window of 19-year-old Andrew Daniel Arzner's Toyota 4Runner. During the deal, Medford police said, Arzner's passenger Jerica Whittney Stinson, 19, allegedly snatched Debler's cash without handing off the pills and Arzner drove away.
    Debler held onto the door while Arzner drove erratically through the parking lot, police allege, trying to shake her off. Debler eventually lost her grip, fell and was run over by the Toyota.
    Police said Arzner and Stinson fled without stopping.
    The pair was arraigned Wednesday in Jackson County Circuit Court, court records show
    Stinson remains in the Jackson County Jail on charges of first- and second-degree robbery, according to court records, as well as identity theft and second-degree theft stemming from a separate case. Her bail is set at $510,000, jail records show.
    Arzner, also in jail, faces first- and second-degree robbery charges, with additional charges of second-degree assault and failure to perform duties of driver to injured persons, court records show. His bail is set at $500,000, jail records show.
